What to do in The Langhe Valley!


  • Curiosities

    Barolo Castel

    The Langhe is a place which is rich in history and romanticism, the fatherland of prized wines and authentic cuisine. Year after year it attracts connoisseurs from all over the world and in particular from mid October, which sees the beginning of the truffle season. The Langhe have not suffered the invasion of tourism en masse, here, the lovers of good wine and good food can stay and enjoy at their ease.


  • Tasting of the typical products


    Eat like a prince? – for example, at the famous Grinzane Cavour restaurant. To know more, just ask one of the two brothers, Maurizio or Luciano. Not only do they personally know all the restaurants and bars in the area, but they also make use of their guests’ opinions in order to be able to give an even more complete service.

    This is the home of Barolo, Barbera and Nebbiolo, so to go back home without even one bottle of these prized red wines would almost be a sacrilege. Visit some of the many wine producers of the area and have a taste of their products. It will be an unforgettable experience.

    Visit "WI-MU", the new museum for the word leading wines.

  • Cycling

    If discovering the area by car is not exactly your ideal choice, or if you are just simply sports lovers, you will be able to go on delightful bicycle excursions, taking the roads or along the country paths. You can, thus, experience the thrill felt by the professionals in the “Giro d’Italia” cycling race which often has the Langhe hills as part of its route. The trekking maps are on sale at Cà San Ponzio, and Maurizio or Luciano, both “inveterate cyclists”, will be only too pleased to show you their favourite circuits.

      Salite dei Campioni


  • Golf

    The golf course, about 10 minutes’ drive away, is especially attractive (www.golfcherasco.com). Set in an incredibly beautiful landscape, with the sun always ready to show its face, this is the ideal location for setting about improving your style.

  • Shopping

    Although Milan and Turin, shopping cities par excellence, are nearby, Alba, Cherasco and Bra can hold their own and are ready to be discovered as new shopping paradises. The most famous brands can be found at interesting prices down their little main streets. And not to mention the Pasticcerie (pastry shops), which display the marvels of their chocolate jewels.... Is there any way to resist that kind of temptation?



  • Celebrate in a homely atmosphere

Wondering how to transform a family party into a special event? Just invite friends and relations to the Langhe, and you will be able to feel the thrill of celebrating in a wine cellar in a warm and simple atmosphere. Authentic cuisine and excellent wines are our magic formula and are difficult to find elsewhere.
